I highly suggest not to enforce updates on users

Updates are not enforced and can be turned off in the options.

I spent a lot of time fixing all the controllers and games

That is nothing at all to do with Launchbox, so a Launchbox update will not effect your controls.

They are enforced..  I literally clicked on "start launchbox" and the update started. It said "installing" despite everything already being installed.

You can turn off updates in options as Neil stated. You can also simply run the installer for the version you want to revert to (should be in your \\LaunchBox\Updates\ folder) on top of your current install and be able to revert to your previous version without any data loss.

I clicked on "launchbox" like I've done for the last five months without issues - and unlike every other time I've done this the tool was "installing".

I ended the "installation" and then tried to launch Launchbox but then it said the tool no longer exists on my computer..

I checked the folder and it's still there.

When I try to launch Launchbox from the folder nothing happens.

So what I just told you is:

1. The tool was working fine for months since February.

2. Today after exiting the tool and trying to restart it it started to "install".

3. After cancelling the installation it no longer starts at all or reacts when trying to start it.

If that isn't an automatic update I don't know what it is..

I don't understand what it was trying to install when I've literally used Launchbox for months.

The tool no longer reacts to me clicking the start-up button - this happened after I cancelled the installation that happened automatically out of nowhere when trying to restart the tool.

So I cannot even get into the menu.

Ah, thanks - installing one of the versions solved it.

All the games were intact thank god.

Glad to hear, I would suggest now going into your settings and unchecking all 3 boxes as well as deleting any installations NEWER than the one you just installed or LaunchBox will attempt to update itself on startup with the newest installer.
